Seven summer signings that could arrive at Arsenal after Mikel Arteta's transfer demand

Arsenal look bound for a busy summer transfer window once again after Mikel Arteta made it clear he needs reinforcements to make up for the Premier League's best.

The Gunners spent over £150 Million last summer in the acquisition of Takahiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Martin Odegaard, Sambi Lokonga, Aaron Ramsdale, and Nuno Tavares.

Despite the heavy spending, the North London team fell short, finishing fifth in the just ended Premier League campaign.

Pierre Emrick Aubameyang's exit in January is likely to be followed by Alexandre Lacazette's and Eddie Nketiah's exits. Both will be out of contract in July. The out of favour Nicolas Pepe, on-loan Lucas Torreira, Hector Bellerin, and Pablo Mari are also likely to depart.

With that in mind, Arsenal could bring in as many as seven players, including two strikers, a midfielder, a left-sided centre-back, a winger, a left-back, and a right-back.

Here are ten players Arsenal could sign this summer.

Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal have been negotiating with Jesus’ representatives for weeks as they look to strike an early deal for the Brazilian this summer.

Jesus has just one year left on his current deal with Manchester city and is aware he will fall further down the pecking order at Etihad Stadium next season due to the arrival of the Norwegian, Erling Haaland.

Youri Tielemans

Although Mohamed Elneny signed a brand new contract at the club, Arteta will want a more forward-thinking midfielder alongside Granit Xhaka.

The 25-year-old midfielder Youri Tielemans is the player who is being heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.

Leicester City seem eager to sell this summer and for the Belgian valued at £30million, he could be seen as a good option should he be up for a move to north London.

Victor Osimhen

The Nigeria international had a remarkable season with Italian giants, Napoli.

According to Goal.com his agent flew to London recently, where he held talks with Arsenal representatives.

The striker is high up on Arsenal's summer transfer target list, but it won't be an easy feat to lure him to the Emirates stadium.

Oleksandr Zichenko

The Ukrainian is another Manchester City star on Arsenal's radar.

Arsenal are in dire need of a back up Left-back and a central midfielder. The Gunners might kill two birds with one stone by signing Zinchenko who can play both positions.

Tammy Abraham

The former Chelsea man recently enjoyed an impressive season with Serie A side, As Roma, scoring 27 goals and helping them to a UEFA Conference League title.

Just after one season in Italy he is already been linked with a move back to England, with Arsenal in prime position to sign him.

Aaron Hickey

The 19-year-old Scot has been an important player for the Serie A side, Bologna, over the last year, racking up 36 appearances in all competitions and scoring five goals.

Arsenal manger, Mikel Arteta, is in the hunt for a new left-back, as Kieran Tierney continues to struggle with injuries and Nuno Tavares inconsistent.

Yves Bissouma

The highly-rated Brighton midfielder was a target for Arsenal last summer before they settled for Sambi Lokonga.

Bissouma is a box-to-box midfielder,  known for his ball-playing ability, and excellent at tracking back.
